VillageFest ~ Palm Springs, California

Every Thursday evening from 6:00 - 10:00 pm, Palm Canyon Drive, the main street in Palm Springs, is closed to traffic and becomes a pedestrian street fair with a variety of entertainment ~ from places to eat, small tables to shop, musicians, and of course, people-watching. We first had a good, but over-priced and less-than-stellar service meal at Kalura Trattoria (although the location was great) and then enjoyed meandering the tables. There were the usual merchants - jewelry, soaps, candles, lamps and fire pits made to order, chair massage (which always had a line), fresh fruits, sweets, dinner food; and the somewhat unusual - like the street performer who had a wind machine so his cape could capture the high-on-the-mountain-breeze while he "played" the violin - but it was actually a CD, and the music continued while he stopped to adjust the air machine to better sway his cape. It was entertaining, to say the least.

The holidays are coming!
